Holiday stress is on its way and before it gets into your system you should start gearing up. Let’s drop Christmas shopping and your party menus for a while. Instead let’s set your house as our main concern today. This have to call some reality check to make sure that your home is holiday ready and that you won’t get embarrassed once you invited some relatives and friends over this holiday season.
Here are 5 pointers to take note to impress your guests with how clean and organise your home is.
#1 Is your living room comfy enough to receive guests?
You don’t need to buy a new set of furniture and appliances to make sure your receiving area exude hospitable vibe. And as a good hostess the least you can offer to your visitors is a clean and comfortable seat. No one would definitely sit on a sofa filled with your pet’s hair or if it smells bad. Remember you let your guests sit to make them feel at home and relaxed.
#2 Are your home décor won’t hurt the eyes of your guests?
Sometimes the festivity excites us to the point that we over decorate our space and it backfires big time after taking pictures and your pricey items look like party clutters left unattended. So how to avoid being a victim of your own house accessory? Stick to the basics like a well-pressed curtain on your window. And don’t forget it is your job as responsible hostess to keep your house child-friendly unless you specified on your invites that it is strictly an adult’s affair.
#3 How well you maintain your carpet?
One of the common mistakes of carpet users is believing that regular vacuum cleaning can keep their carpet on perfect shape. However, different carpet requires different scrubbing and if you don’t use the right method it is as good as not cleaning your carpet at all. And there are some instances using inappropriate washing agent to our carpet can harm us. Therefore, it is just right to consult the people who are knowledgeable about carpet cleaning better yet have them do the work for you. It is still better to spend a reasonable fee to keep your carpet clean than risking your guest’s health or the carpet itself.
#4 Can you move freely and easily locate what you need on your kitchen?
Your kitchen is where you prepare your foods, therefore, more than any other area of your house, the kitchen must be topnotch and spotless. And when we say top notch it is not only your working area or the dining area but every single inch of your kitchen, utensils and appliances included. You cannot expect to see your guests impressed to all your cooking skills even if you are really good if your kitchen sanitation is very poor or if your utensils are below par hygienic.
#5 Is your comfort room really gives comfort?
Ironically this small space we often took for granted has a lot to say about us. Believe it or not, how our bathroom looks leave an imprint to the memory of our guests. It is like the unique signature of the entire house. Some may think that it is not that important to thoroughly clean this area because it is not frequently seen by the visitors. But remember hosting a party is different from receiving friends on typical days. Therefore, if you want to leave a good impression to all your invitees make sure that you don’t leave this area uncovered.
This checklist might be overwhelming especially if you are a working mother. I can imagine how difficult it is to find time to do all these and keep yourself calm and collected. But that doesn’t mean you just drop the idea of hosting a Christmas party in your house or even a simple family reunion. On critical times like this, all you need is a reputable like Perfect Clean.
